I will from now on disregard all hotels/motels that have an A4 piece of paper on their entry with the 2 most intimidating words to grace a motel: NO REFUNDS.
I go check in, my partner is a smoker, so he was outside having a cigarette (first one in 5 hours as we had a rental) when someone finally came down to check us in, he was cold and unwelcoming, and noticed my boyfriend out side. he then pointed to another sign that said that there was a cleaning fee for smoking in the room, and i said yes i understand that, and he went onto charge my credit card $200 in case my partner did smoke, as well as the standard $100 bond, and the accommodation.
When we got to our "ocean view king room" that we booked we discovered what can only be described as a 1970's porno hotel room. Oh and no ocean view. King bed was 2 twins pushed together. Cockroaches (given yes they were dead) on the floor, looks like bathroom had not be cleaned in 15 years, dust on the curtains, and a definite strong smell of smoke in the air.
At the point of tears with what we were paid $160+ a night for, we made the decision right then and there that we weren't staying. then NO REFUNDS sign comes into play.
I was at the stage where i didnt want to deal with the rude man at the check in so i made my partner do it, where he was told no fewer than 5 times "no refunds". Well obviously they do give refunds as after 15 minutes he returned with credit card refund receipts and a few choice words, then informed me there were 2 other groups of people wanting refunds after him as well.
No worth considering, took us 45mins driving to make it into the city, and the bus route takes close to 1.5 hours according the the information they provided.
